you’re probably already familiar with teenage baking sensation clara polito, who owns and operates her own vegan business in los angeles called clara’s cakes…after all we’ve posted tworecipe videos with her in the past. clara went vegan at the age of 12, and frustrated with the animal-free dessert options in her area, she decided to learn how to make her own treats. four years later, she’s got her own bakery with a menu that wows all kinds of eaters. in today’s video, we sat down with clara at her home in LA and learned about her most delicious creations and why she went vegan in the first place.

had a ridiculously good dinner tonight with some friends at the somewhat recently reopened fatty’s in eagle rock. top notch food in a really nice environment—-this is definitely one of the best vegetarian restaurants in LA, and the ambiance can’t be beat. go there if you haven’t been.
clara’s cakes provided the delicious dessert (not available at fatty’s).
if you’re ever flying out of san franciso, be sure to book virgin america from SFO…because that means you’ll get to leave from terminal 2, which is crazy vegan-friendly.
go to terminal 2, seek out plant cafe, and you won’t be sorry. they have vegan burgers, wraps, quinoa plates, baked goods, and more…AT AN AIRPORT, PEOPLE! here’s what we ate:
an asian wrap with tofu and vegetables.
a vegan burger made of beets (it was excellent!).
a vegan cupcake, just because you gotta.
prices were a bit high, but that goes for ALL food at airports. and plant wasn’t the only airport resto with meatless options, there was a wine bar next door with a few clearly labeled vegan menu items.
insane ferrero rocher cupcake from ms cupcake in brixton. i have heard great things about this all vegan cupcake vendor in london, and my expectations were definitely exceeded. if you’re ever in town, add ms cupcake to your “must visit” list. her shop is super close to the tube station, the staff is friendly, and the treats are delicious.
